At Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, a beautician and a chef are left stranded by an airline strike and bad weather. Even though they can't stand each other, they are forced to share the last remaining hotel room in the city. As they get to know each other, their icy surfaces begin to thaw.

We hate to say it, but we can't find anywhere to view this film.

What are critics saying?


Variety by Derek Elley

Stays resolutely grounded thanks to miscasting of Juliette Binoche and Jean Reno as the leads and a script that contrarily breaks every rule of the genre.


ReelViews by James Berardinelli

For those who have a penchant for talky subtitled romantic comedies, this one has its charms, but is probably more worth seeking out once it's on video than during its (probably short) theatrical life.


Austin Chronicle by Kimberley Jones

Jet Lag's romantic fluffery is somewhat beneath these old pros, but they make its meet-cute scenario work, mostly -– and most especially when crusty, grumpy, grizzled Jean Reno announces he's "totally in love."


Village Voice by Leslie Camhi

The writerly restraint that confines them to the airport is admirable, though the fairy-tale ending in Acapulco seems like a throwaway.
